You have to know that there well exist some new devel branches of LFS 
including the new linux kernel family 2.6.x and the complete new libraries 
NTPL ( replacement of linuxthreads  with linux 2.4.x ).

You can well compile a new system regarding the instructions you can find on 
this site

Now, if you want to download a ready to run system, I put on my ftp server a build for i686 systems. This iso 
file is not bootable but you just have to modify manually configuration
